Biography

Minus One is a Greek Cypriot band that plays everything, from pop and rock classics, to today’s newer hits. The band does not just play covers, but rearranges and refreshes the songs bringing them closer to the bands own sound.

Although starting as a cover band, as a side project they released original songs but with a different name. They will represent Cyprus in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest so they started working on their own material this time not as a side project but as Minus One.

Their Eurovision song Alter Ego is the product of collaboration between the band and Thomas G:son who also handled the production. The band previously tried to represent Cyprus in 2015 where they placed third (first by the judges) in the Cypriot national selection with the song Shine.

English

 

Waking up alone, like a man that failed … Trapped into the mist of our fairytale And you know, you know, you know, I’m still inside

I knew it all along, but I couldn’t tell … This kind of love, would lock my heart in jail You know, you know, you know, it’s doing time

Caught in the middle of, the dawn and the sunrise
Life is a miracle, I saw it in your eyes
Under the spotlight, I howl in the moonlight … Howling for you

Take it on … take it on … and get me through the night Take it on … take it on … until the morning light
Take it on … take it on … and get me through the night Takeiton…takeiton…takeiton

—– —–

I’ve heard it all before, people always say … Time can take the sorrow and the pain away You know, you know, this love will never die

Caught in the middle of, the dawn and the sunrise
Life is a miracle, I saw it in your eyes
Under the spotlight, I howl in the moonlight … Howling for you Caught in the middle of, the dawn and the sunrise
Life is a miracle, I saw it in your eyes
Under the spotlight, I howl in the moonlight … Howling for you

Take it on … take it on … and get me through the night Take it on … take it on … until the morning light
Take it on … take it on … and get me through the night Takeiton…takeiton…takeiton

I cross the oceans, I fly on the skyline … Drive any road that, will bring me by your side

—- howl —-

Take it on … take it on … and get me through the night Take it on … take it on … until the morning light
Take it on … take it on … and get me through the night Takeiton…takeiton…takeiton

Caught in the middle of, the dawn and the sunrise Life is a miracle, I saw it in your eyes

French

Se réveiller seul, comme un homme qui a échoué … Pris au piège dans la brume de notre histoire de fées
Et tu sais, tu sais, tu sais, je suis toujours à l’intérieur

Je savais tout le long, mais je ne pouvais pas imaginer … Ce genre d’amour, serait verrouiller mon cœur en prison Tu sais, tu sais, tu sais, ca fait longtemps

Pris au milieu de l’aube et le lever du soleil
La vie est un miracle, je l’ai vu dans tes yeux
Sous les projecteurs, je hurle au clair de lune … je hurle pour toi

Affronte le … Affronte le… et mène moi à travers la nuit Affronte le… Affronte le… jusqu’à la lumière du matin Affronte le… Affronte le… et mène moi à travers la nuit Affronte le… Affronte le… Affronte le

—– —–
J’ai entendu tout ça avant, les gens disent toujours … Le temps peut éloigner la tristesse et la douleur Tu sais, tu sais, cet amour ne mourra jamais

Pris au milieu de l’aube et le lever du soleil
La vie est un miracle, je l’ai vu dans tes yeux
Sous les projecteurs, je hurle au clair de lune … je hurle pour toi

Pris au milieu de l’aube et le lever du soleil
La vie est un miracle, je l’ai vu dans tes yeux
Sous les projecteurs, je hurle au clair de lune … je hurle pour toi

Affronte le … Affronte le… et mène moi à travers la nuit Affronte le… Affronte le… jusqu’à la lumière du matin Affronte le… Affronte le… et mène moi à travers la nuit Affronte le… Affronte le… Affronte le

Je traverse les océans, je vole sur la ligne d’horizon … je conduis toute route qui, me mène à tes côtés

—- hurler —-

Affronte le … Affronte le… et mène moi à travers la nuit Affronte le… Affronte le… jusqu’à la lumière du matin Affronte le… Affronte le… et mène moi à travers la nuit Affronte le… Affronte le… Affronte le

Pris au milieu de l’aube et le lever du soleil La vie est un miracle, je l’ai vu dans tes yeux
